Eyes Like Stars

Welcome to the Theatre Illuminata, where the characters of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. The actors are bound to the Theatre by The Book, an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of the actors, but they are her family. And she is about to lose them all because The Book has been threatened, and along with it the Theatre. It's the only home Bertie has ever known, and she has to find a way to save. But first, there's that small problem of two handsome men, both vying for her attention. The course of true love never did run smooth.

This book was amazing, it was funny and descriptive. Every character had its own personality, none alike.
It almost makes me want to read Shakespeare to find out more about some of the characters in the book. I really enjoyed the treatment of Bertie's two love interests towards each other. My favorite character was Bertie, because she reminded me of myself, only she could do anything she wanted without getting in trouble. Example: Dying hair blue, blasting a cannon through the ceiling, taking a bath in a Jacuzzi hanging form the ceiling. She is very headstrong and is always doing something crazy.
I loved this book, it is a must read for those who need a good story and a definition of Hamlet.
